Longfield Farm 1936 Catalog notes:" 'Wasatch' (Thorup, 1935). The largest plicata yet introduced. Of pure glistening white evenly marked with medium blue. Plicata marking very pronounced in the bud, and the opened flower has no dark brown or other markings. The excellently formed flowers are of heavy substance that withstand wind and rain. 40 inches."
Wasatch: (Thorup). Flower is so floppy can't see why it was introduced. [Belsley, Ray J., Varietal Comments. Bulletin of the American Iris Society 74 (July 1939), 19.]
"In the Ulrich garden I discovered Wasatch after overlooking it for all these years. It looked like a really fine plicata to me, though perhaps not so glamorous as some of the newer ones." [David R. Kinnish, “Kansas and Missouri Gardens in 1946” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 103, (October 1946): 28.]
